One can’t deny how brutal nature can get. When it comes to predator coming after a prey, the action scenes can be pretty intense. People would easily pick sides because it’s hard not to. So when this video of a man shooting a python who killed his goat was uploaded online, it definitely got a lot of people talking.
Scott Dame of Florida found that a huge python was coiled around his goat and is about to swallow it whole. But with his quick thinking, he shot the serpent multiple times, eight times to be exact, using his .45 caliber pistol before it could devour the already-dead goat.
As expected, people took sides; some thought it was just right for the Florida man to shoot the animal while others blasted him for disturbing the course of nature.
One commented that the snake was simply doing what it needs to do to survive – eat. Some are angered by the fact that the goat was already dead and that Dame could have just let the snake eat it. Another even argued that snakes make great pets and that shooting the python was just unacceptable.

So he takes a shot at it multiple times.
There are also those who believe Dame was in the right, especially when the animal was considered an intruder. Most of the people who commented believe that the snake should go as it could be a threat to livestock, house pets and even children in the area. And there’s that fact about pythons not being a native to the state, and for that, many would have done what Dame did.
Some people criticized Dame for shooting the animal, while others think he did what was right.
“The snakes are not native to Florida and do not belong here irresponsible pet owners that let their pets go when they get too big are the reason for this. I like snakes but these pythons are a danger to our ecosystem and need to be eradicated,” a Facebook user shared.
Dame is aware of his critics on social media, but as reported by Fox News, he’s not apologizing for what he has done.

‘Faceless Fish’ Seen For The First Time After Over 100 Years
The mysterious deep-sea fish had not been seen since 1873.
Despite much hard work and research by scholars and scientists, humans have only been able to explore a small percentage of the world's oceans. There are deeper water territories that we have yet to study, and even more water creatures we have yet to discover. Indeed, the underwater world remains a big mystery.
Just recently, a team of Australian government scientists probing an unexplored area in Australia’s waters found a 'faceless fish' that was seen only once before over a century ago. The mysterious species was first discovered off the coast of Papua New Guinea in 1873.

Encounters with a bear aren’t only scary – they can be life-threatening as well. There are, however, some lucky and brave people who manage to survive and tell the tale.
Remember 61-year-old Rick Nelson? He’s that guy who had a fistfight with a huge black bear after he was attacked by the animal while walking his dog. He walked away with several scratches on his face and shoulder from the terrifying incident.
Now another ‘man versus bear’ story has recently been making rounds on the interwebs and, like Nelson’s experience, it also happened in Ontario, Canada.
